actually no , i'm signing up for a foreign exchange student program , and an interview question asked what my 3 character stregnths were :)
It is things about a person that makes them stand out above others e.g. honesty, courage, creativity etc. Those are all character strenghts
Otherwise if its not about a book or a story it could be about your personal strengths when it comes to the make up of your character...
I guess it means what your character is good at doing. What are his abilities and what does he/she do that make ppl value him/her.
I assume your talking about homework about a book or story. If so its asking you what the good points about the character are.
Charactor strengths are things like honesty, tenacity, kind hearted, etc...the good things that make up a person's charactor.
